So, when Larry makes it clear in the first few pages that he's actively going to be avoiding these placeholders, then I thought we might be onto a winner, and we definitely are! I wish I'd discovered his books 3 years ago. The writing style is easy and followable with a smattering of wit - just enough to keep things light, but not so much as to distract.
The examples are very good too, although occasionally there's a bit of redundancy around setting up the skeleton page to hold the examples. One of the other reviewers didn't like the "two column" style, and occasionally it doesn't help, but overall it leads to a huge amount of saved space, meaning more examples can be packed into the book.
This book is definitely worth every penny and every well-deserved star.
I've used the chapter on multi dimensional arrays as well and several other chapters. The extra Object Orientated chapters are useful - there's a chapter on Design Patterns and further information on traits.
If you are serious about understanding Design patterns, use Head First Design Patterns in conjunction with Chapter 7. A lot more understandable than the Gof equivalent.
There's useful stuff on running PHP scripts outwith a web browser later on as well.
Just one thing...
Get a paper version, do not get Kindle edition.
Why? Because once you buy paper version, you get Kindle version for free (also including pdf and ePub version) - 2 for 1 hidden offer.
So please buy [paper version]:
PHP Advanced and Object-oriented Programming: Visual QuickPro Guide
and forget about [kindle edition]:
PHP Advanced and Object-Oriented Programming: Visual QuickPro Guide (3rd Edition)
In conclusion this book is great to introduce some advanced subjects used in programming. As said on the back of the book it’s a great reference guide (and I would say a bit more than that) and will give you suggestions on how to pursue the topics covered in greater depth.
